We’ll Go Further

PowerPoint Presentation:

Some of us…we just knew before our children were born.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Some of us knew shortly after we gave birth…nursing our babies day and night, rocking them in our arms, watching their first reactions …we knew that something was different.

where there are fewer boundaries.:

where there are fewer boundaries. Some of us believe that Learning is as natural as Life itself. And so Learning should happen in a natural environment….

PowerPoint Presentation:

For some of us, it took a wee bit longer. We realized when they got older that they did not belong in the walls of a classroom. Nobody had prepared us for this. NOW what?!

PowerPoint Presentation:

Some of us cried and screamed, over and over for help. Nobody understood...

PowerPoint Presentation:

…and the pain was s o strong that there were NO WORDS to describe it….

PowerPoint Presentation:

So we gave up… and brought them back home.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We embrace the opportunity to learn again with our children….to reclaim some of our own childhood.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Some of us simply don’t know what else to do. It’s the only option we have found for our child. At this time.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And yet, for some of us … we still don’t know why we do it. We just do. We are brave.

But some things we know for sure…:

But some things we know for sure… They are passionate. They believe. They know what they want… yet they need us so badly.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They are young. They need time enough to play.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They have passions.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They dance. And play soccer.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They’re gymnasts

PowerPoint Presentation:

They paint. They swim. They’re musicians. They ski. And they have stories to tell.

PowerPoint Presentation:

They are compassionate…

PowerPoint Presentation:

…and true to themselves.

But sometimes…:

But sometimes …

Sometimes…:

Sometimes… They still cry for help. And so do we.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sometimes, we even cry more often than our children. Because the load we carry is simply too heavy.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sometimes, our children feel lost. Or confused. And so do we.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sometimes, we become so focused on learning that we think we have forgotten how.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sometimes we need to take three steps backwards so we can move forward again.

But MOST often…:

But MOST often… we Believe.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We embrace our children’s individualities and we celebrate them. We celebrate the freedom our kids have and the choices they are given.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We learn WITH our children.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We get to know our children in a way that most parents don’t experience. We are so fortunate.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We absorb every moment with them now , while they’re young. We are very wise .

PowerPoint Presentation:

We have so many reasons for what we do. And we are all so different, yet… Our differences are what brings us together.

PowerPoint Presentation:

And By Coming Together, We Will Go Further.
